THE COW. 

At-tend. my dears, and 1 will show 
The va-ri-ous u-ses of the Cow. 
At break-last, ev'-rv day, von see 
How much her milk im-proves your tea. 

Still fur-ther, too, your tastes to please, 
Her milk 's con-vert-ed in-to cheese ; 
And those who wish, may ev'-rv day 
IVlake from her milk nice curds and whey. 

Our cream the Cow pro-du-ces, too, 
But milk is bet-ter much for you ; 
Rich cream is riev-er half so good 
As milk, in lit-tle chil-dren's food. 

The cream m-deed is dai-ly churn'd. 
And thus to but-ter quick-ly turn'd ; 
And what more nice, when this is spread 
Quite thin up-on a slice of bread ? 

The Ox sup-plies the beef you eat, 
The Calf the veal — how nice such meat! 
For food and la- hour thus, you see, 
The Ox and Cow serve von and me.
